Adolescent treatment - creating confident smiles for teens

The teenage years are one of the most common times for orthodontic treatment. We also realise that most teens don’t want their treatment to affect their appearance. Many teens participate in school activities, or are active on social media, where their smile is front and centre. At Allstar Orthodontics, we aim to keep your child feeling confident throughout orthodontic treatment.

How can orthodontic treatment help my teen?

Through treatments, like Invisalign® clear aligners or braces, we can help shape your teen’s teeth and jaw. We can improve the function of their bite, prevent TMJ issues, provide better facial symmetry, and protect the overall health of their smile.

Having a straight smile makes it easier to keep teeth clean, and can help ease your teen through this time of great change in their life.

How long will treatment take?

The length of treatment depends on the severity of the problem and the treatment chosen. Each teen’s case is unique, but generally speaking, Invisalign® treatment will take between 12 and 20 months while braces treatment takes an average of 15-24 months.

Can my teen still participate in their school activities?

Absolutely! If your teen is undergoing Invisalign® treatment, they can continue to play sports or musical instruments as normal. If they are involved in contact sports and wearing braces with brackets, they should wear an orthodontic mouthguard to protect both the appliances and their teeth.

Invisalign® treatment for teens

Invisalign® clear aligners are extremely popular among teens because they are so convenient. Your teen will be provided with a series of custom-moulded plastic aligner trays that will straighten their teeth without the need for ‘train-tracks.’ These clear, removable aligners are a great option for teens because they won’t interfere with your teen’s eating habits or social activities, or your schedule as a busy parent!

Because the aligners don’t need adjustments, orthodontic check-ups will be completed virtually via the Dental Monitoring app. Using this cutting-edge remote monitoring technology allows Dr Mike to keep track of your teen’s treatment at a pixel level all from the comfort of your home.

Invisalign® aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
